    +1 and probably won't watch live. May watch lowlights afterwards so as not to waste time - and for the rest of the remaining calendar too.

    Motorsport IT reports that Ferrari decided to change Leclerc's engine. He will drop five positions on the US GP grid because the engineers have approved the installation of PU 6.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    I assume it's just the ICE with recent modifications for reliability, a 5 place penalty is better than starting at the back but also more risk of collisions at the start. I really want Charles to keep P2 in the WDC standings.

    It’s difficult at the moment. Our current car back to 2019 car. Tyre eating machine.

    Perez is carrying good form 1st in Singapore & 2nd in Japan.

    Robert Shwartzman will drive for Ferrari in FP1 instead of Charles Leclerc at CotA, as part of the 2 mandatory free practice sessions for young drivers.

    I'm surprised Charles isn't getting a negative message here, first they give FP1 to Schwartzman in his car and then put Charles at the back of the grid for the race...I understand the reasons but even so, he deserves better!

    It's due the else you need to do a full FP2 for Pirelli 2023 prototype tyres. If you use a youngster in FP1 then you can drive with the race tyres in FP2.

    Been also on 24th of May when they played in Belgrade. Great, but I missed songs from Somewhere in time...

    Charles at the back of the grid? He will take pole and start P6.

    As far as the latest info I've seen is concerned, Charles is taking a full engine/PU change, but the info isn't consistent so who knows?!

    A very, very eclectic mix in my 'record collection' but currently listening to a fair bit of (old) Dio and Metallica. First LP bought (circa 1972/3..) was Sabbath, either Vol 4 or Master of Reality, can't remember!

    Old rockers never die! 63 and feeling anything from 21 to 95 depending on the circumstances!

    Back to the thread - does LEC actually have a back of grid penalty? Nothing on the BBC site so far.

    No idea of what penalty Charles may have to take but the last item I saw yesterday said back of the grid for whole new PU6. Hardly surprising BBC don't mention F1 unless HAM wins something. Keep on rockin', and I'm older than you, so not into heavy metal!
